ABSTRACT A terbium-sensitized spectrofluorimetric method using an anionic surfactant, sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate (SDBS), was developed for the determination of gatifloxacin (GFLX). A coordination complex system of GFLX-Tb(3+)-SDBS was studied. It was found that SDBS significantly enhanced the fluorescence intensity of the complex (about 11-fold). Optimal experimental conditions were determined as follows: excitation and emission wavelengths of 331 and 547nm, pH 7.0, 2.0x10(-4)moll(-1) terbium (III), and 2.0x10(-4)moll(-1) SDBS. The enhanced fluorescence intensity of the system (DeltaI(f)) showed a good linear relationship with the concentration of GFLX over the range of 5.0x10(-10) to 5.0x10(-8)moll(-1) with a correlation coefficient of 0.9996. The detection limit (3sigma) was determined as 6.0x10(-11)moll(-1). This method has been successfully applied to the determination of GFLX in pharmaceuticals and human urine/serum samples. Compared with most of other methods reported, the rapid and simple procedure proposed in the text offers higher sensitivity, wider linear range, and better stability. The interaction mechanism of the system is also studied by the research of ultraviolet absorption spectra, surface tension, solution polarity and fluorescence polarization.

    ABSTRACT: In the present work, a novel amphiphilic magnetic molecularly imprinted polymer (M-MIP) has been synthesized by a simple non covalent method for the loading of gatifloxacin (GTFX) in polar solvent. This nanomaterial used as sorbent has been applied to the solid phase extraction of GTFX in different spiked biological fluids. For the first time, studies of dispersibility and solubility behaviors with different solvents and water were performed to demonstrate amphiphilicity and also to find the better nanomaterial obtained. Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X-ray (XRD) were used to characterize the nanomaterials, and Scatchard plot analysis to demonstrate the binding kinetic. Results suggest that the dispersibility, solubility and the adsorption in water have relationships with the structure of nanomaterials prepared. The oleic acid coated on the M-MIP combined with the washing process has enhanced the amphiphilicity of the nanomaterials. The M-MIP2 showed better selectivity and adsorption behavior with imprinted efficiency higher than (2) in water, as well as in biological fluids. Moreover, no interference with constituents of blank urine and blank serum samples for solid phase extraction (SPE) was observed. Moreover, loading recovery was found higher than 95% with low RSD. The novel amphiphilic magnetic nanomaterial prepared here as sorbent is suitable for SPE of GTFX in biological fluids for therapeutic monitoring control. It could be also used as carrier in drug delivery system for experimental and clinical studies.

    ABSTRACT: A sensitive and rapid flow-injection chemiluminescence (CL) method has been developed for the determination of gatifloxacin in pharmaceutical preparations and biological samples. The method is based on the enhancing effect of gatifloxacin on CL emission generated by the interaction of Ce (IV) in sulphuric acid and sodium hyposulphite (Na(2)S(2)O(4)) sensitized by sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate (SDBS). Strong CL emission was observed when gatifloxacin was injected into the Ce (IV) in sulphuric acid and Na(2)S(2)O(4) solution incorporated with SDBS in a flow-cell. Several experimental parameters affecting the CL reaction were investigated and optimized systematically. Under the optimum conditions, it was found that the CL intensity is proportional to the concentration of gatifloxacin in the range of 1.12 × 10(-11)-4.40 × 10(-9) g mL(-1) with a co-relation coefficient of 0.9994. The limit of detection was found to be 4.87 × 10(-12) g mL(-1) and the relative standard deviation (RSD, n=7) was 1.8% for 4 × 10(-8) g mL(-1) of GFLX. The proposed method offers higher sensitivity, wide linear range and better stability without requiring sophisticated instrumentation. Thus, the proposed method has been successfully applied to the determination of gatifloxacin in pharmaceuticals, serum and human urine.

    ABSTRACT: A novel method of resonance light scattering (RLS) was developed for the analysis of trace metallothioneins (MTs) in human urine. In a CH(3)COOH-CH(3)COONa buffer solution of pH 4.5, the formation of a complex between levofloxacin (LEV)-Pd and MTs led to enhance the RLS intensity of the system, and the enhanced RLS intensity at 468nm was proportional to the concentration of MTs in the range of 0.059-22.4μgmL(-1). The linear regression equation was ΔI=127.5 ρ (μgmL(-1))-88.02 with a correlation coefficient of 0.9992, and the detection limit of 17.8ngmL(-1). The relative standard deviation and the average recovery were 3.8-5.4% (n=11) and 92.15%, respectively. The proposed method is convenient, reliable and sensitive, and has been used successfully for the determination of trace MTs in human urine samples.
